Well here’s a little gift for you going into the weekend: MOG — the streaming music service with a library of over 11 million songs that sites like Techcrunch have been drooling over for some time — just went live with a completely free, ad-supported version of the service. No pesky invite from someone needed. And the free version of the service will be ad free for the first 60 days. Sign me up!
“Free listeners on MOG receive a virtual ‘gas tank’ full of music visibly integrated into the service,” the company said in a press release. “The refillable tank, called FreePlay, is built upon sophisticated game mechanics that enable users to earn free music in perpetuity, simply by listening, sharing with friends and exploring MOG. The FreePlay tank showcases how much free music a user has along with ‘earn music’ and ‘upgrade’ links that provide listeners the opportunity to earn more music, or upgrade to MOG Primo, a subscription plan that includes unlimited, ad-free music, and access to MOG via mobile devices, consumer electronic and streaming entertainment devices, and soon, the car.”
I’ve been hearing raves about MOG from friends who use it for some time now and I now have no excuse not to check it out. Has there ever been a better time for fans of music to be alive? I think not.
Below is a promotional video the company posted to YouTube where actual users express their love for it. I guess I know how I’ll be wasting time this weekend.
Y’all have a great weekend!
